Cantina Colli Euganei 

Today, as a cooperative, Cantina Colli Euganei brings together about 680 winemakers, spread over the protected area of the Euganean Hills Nature Reserve.

It has taken various geological periods for the Euganean Hills to become gentle hills capable of protecting vines and exposing them to the sun in such a favourable way while providing. 

The soils consist of calcareous deposits of the Eocene primeval sea, mixed with volcanic eruption, and have an incredible natural fertility and mineral density. 

The Cantina Colli Euganei is  situated in the heart of the Veneto region, in the middle of an area that has been dedicated to vine and olive tree growing since ancient times. Today, it is acknowledged by the latest regulations of 2010 as a DOC and DOCG area.
